Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Rob Parker at WDIV, It’s official.
The NHL should really be called the NGL, as in National Gimmick League.
It seems like that’s all the National Hockey League is about these days, so much so that it messed up an event that was actually pretty cool.
Somehow, the NHL powers-that-be didn’t believe that Hockeytown was good enough to host the 2013 Winter Classic.
Instead, they scheduled the Jan. 1 game against the Toronto Maple Leafs and Detroit Red Wings to play at Michigan Stadium. The league simply dissed the fact these two Original Six teams having been playing in Detroit for more than 50 years. Instead, they want to set some silly attendance record by using the Big House to sell more than 100,000 tickets.
It’s cheap, it’s tasteless. Especially since a few years ago Michigan and Michigan State did it already in a college
